I saw your message. Would your Wright's have been from East Texas at any time? Possibly the Camp/Upshur county areas.
My great-grandmother was found in this area in 1875. Her name was Lesia (Lucy) Wright Hearne. She was a former slave. I think that her father was Andy Wright. She was listed as having been born in Mississippi or Alabama. Please help me find which plantation she might have come from. Thanks, Dorcas

Sorry it took so long, it is a really busy time of the year here and on top
of that, my ISP has been down off and on.

I have searched my records and found only one Kirby in the line: Amos Kirby
m. Ann Haines on January 03, 1781. The Haines line goes back to tie into
the Ballinger line that ties into my family line. I have looked and will
list all of the John Wright's that I have:

1. John Wright b. abt. 1650 d. August 05, 1736 m. Martha ? b. abt 1650
Their Children: John b. abt. 1670, James, and Sarah

2. John Wright b. Jan. 28, 1716 d. Bet. 1789 - 1790 m. Rachel Wells b.
March 20, 1720 d. December 23, 1771
Their Children: William, Mary, Joseph, Charity (my
gggrandmother), Margaret, Rachel, John C. Wright, Jr. b. December 12, 1748,
Sarah, Hannah, James, Susannah b. April 16, 1755, Elizabeth, Nathan, Thomas,
Keziah and Isaac.

3. John Wright b. May 07, 1759 son of William Wright and Leah Tansey and
grandson of John Wright #2.

4. John Wright b. 1774 d. 1850 m. Margaret Reece and son of James Wright
and Sarah Haworth and grandson of John Whright #2.
Their Children: James and Jacob

5. John Logan Wright b. 1885 d. June 15, 1973 m. Rosa L. Noellsch. Son
of Henry E. Wright, Judge Unknown children.

6. John Prior Wright b. March 16, 1802 d. April 02, 1882 m. Hepsiba
Coats b. September 1803 d. October 16, 1892. Son of Isaac Wright and
Susanah Haworth, grandson of John Wright #2.
Their Children: William, Mary, Isaac, Sarah, Rhoda, Elizabeth,
Richard, Luna, David, Susannah (b. November 12, 1839 m Levi Coppock),
Rachel, Leroy and Charity.

I have the gedCom for this file and most of my information came from
relatives and also research from other GedCom. If this can help, let me

What John Wright is your line? I have found that the Wright family is very
prolific and this makes it hard to track down sometimes. Let me know.

Dear Dorcas
My John Wright died in Pittsylvania County, Va.
on 17 October 1791. His daughter, Susanna Wright
married Henry Kirby and they eventually went
to Tennessee in 1800.
In the will of 17 October 1791, John Wright mentioned
four slaves. He gave "Doll" to Susanna and Henry Kirby
and they set her free in the will of Henry Kirby in
1830. He gave Stephen to Thomas Wright and I
do not know anything about this family. He gave Daniel
to Elizabeth Kirby and I do not know anything
about this family. He gave Lucy to John Wright, Jr. and
I do not know anything about this family.
I am sorry that I do not know anything about Texas
Wrights but maybe this might be some help.

Elizabeth's husband Francis Kerby/Kirby gave the slave Daniel to their oldest son Oliver:

"On 1 July 1826 Francis Kirby Sr., deeded to his 'beloved son Oliver', 124 acres of his land on Mill Creek waters of Pacolet River, also one negro by the name of Daniel, his cattle, horses, hogs, funiture, farm utensils, loom and his copper still. Union Co. SC Register Mesne Conveyance Book S, Pg# 336

I don't know what happened after that. Oliver died in 1852 here is all I know of his probate. Since I haven't seen the original, I don't know if Daniel is mentioned:

LWT of Oliver Kirby Recorded in Will Book D 333, Box 12, Package 29. Recorded 2 March 1852 R. Bowen,O. S. D.
Olivers estate was probated in 1878, a Union Co. judge published in the Union Weekly Times, issue of 7 June 1878, a notice requiring Richard Kirby, Patsey Mitchell, Reney Charewood, David Lewis, John Kirby, Wright Kirby, Henry Kirby, Avey Brown and other defendants, to appear in court 2 July 1878 to show cause, why the real estate of Oliver Kirby, deceased, should not be sold or partitioned.
Union Probate Box 67, package 3.
Oliver lists Minerva Lemasters in his LWT
This Richard is the son of John Kirby, brother to Oliver. John Kirby listed above is the son of Francis Kirby Jr.

My ancestor was Francis and Elizabeth's son Wright Kirby.

Ted -

In a previous posting you mention the Wright's of Tennessee. My Lucy (lethia) Wright's parent was from Tennessee. Was there a Benjamin Wright mentioned in your research who was single, a slaveholder, and a farmer? Was there a slave by the name of Andy in any of your research? Lemme Know,

I've been going through old messages on the board. I am not sure whether or not I ever replied. I think that my Lethia (Lucy) Wright-Hearne stated that her parents were born in Kentucky and Tennessee or Virginia. I do believe that one of Lucy's parents were of mixed heritage. I will try to trace from what you posted.
Was there a Benjamin Wright in your line? Were any of your Wrights ever in Mississippi?
